Amy Racina To Speak – Ultralight Pack to be Raffled

I received the following message this morning from Amy Racina.

Remember her: A 60-foot fall onto granite. Both legs shattered. Off-trail. Utterly alone in deep wilderness. Backpacker Amy Racina’s compelling new memoir “Angels in the Wilderness” chronicles her terrifying true-life ordeal.

(Another good reason to consider carrying a Personal Locator Beacon)

Dear friends of “Angels in the Wilderness”

I’ll be touring the Pacific Northwest for the next couple of weeks. If you have friends or family in Seattle or Portland who might like to hear
my survival story, please let them know. All of these events are free!

We will also be raffling off a Gossamer Gear® “Mariposa Plus” Backpack – a Terrific Ultralight backpack, weighing just 1 lb. 4.5 oz. with all the features. www.gossamergear.com And of course an author-signed copy of Angels in the Wilderness – a $155.00 value! The drawing is on March 31, at the Yosemite Association Annual Meeting in Yosemite Valley. (Winner will be notified by phone or e-mail and need not be present to win.)
